SUNDAY

OPRAH’S MASTER CLASS 10 p.m., OWN

If ever there was an artist who deserved this platform it’s Sunday’s guest, Cicely Tyson. The Oscar-nominated, Tony- and Emmy award-winning actress has had a remarkable career onstage and on screens large and small. From soaps to “Sounder,” from “The Trip to Bountiful” to “Roots,” Tyson is indeed a master of her craft.

MONDAY

PARTNERS 9 p.m., FX

Kelsey Grammer (“Frasier,” “Boss”) and Martin Lawrence (“Martin,” “Bad Boys”) star in this new comedy about mismatched law partners. Like several comic predecessors — including “Anger Management” and “Saint George” — the show is one of FX’s new 10/90 experiments, meaning if the first 10 episodes hit a specific ratings benchmark, it will trigger an order for 90 more.

TUESDAY

CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL: COUNTRY’S NIGHT TO ROCK 8 p.m., ABC

The annual roundup of the most exciting performances from the Country Music Association’s Music Festival, which takes over Nashville for four days in June. Having been at LP Field for many of the shows, I can say performances from Miranda Lambert (pictured) and Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, and Lzzy Hale, and a particularly fired-up The Band Perry are safe bets.

WEDNESDAY

TOP CHEF DUELS 10 p.m., BRAVO

Eighteen former competitors from “Top Chef” and “Top Chef Masters” return to square off in the kitchen in head-to-head cook-offs. Curtis Stone hosts and takes a place at the judges’ table alongside Gail Simmons and a rotating cast of guest judges, including chefs Wolfgang Puck and Hugh Acheson. (Pictured: Marcel Vigneron, Richard Blais.)

Morgan Spurlock (“Super Size Me”) hosts this stroll through gluttony, lust, envy, greed, sloth, pride, and wrath. Each episode will present a true story that relates to one of the cardinal
vices, and we’re guessing the results will not be pretty.

FRIDAY

THE KNICK 9 p.m., CINEMAX

This intriguing, and bloody, new drama about a fictional turn-of-the-century hospital in New York — the Knickerbocker — stars Clive Owen as a brilliant but angst-ridden doctor on the cusp of major medical breakthroughs in surgery. All 10 episodes of the first season were directed by executive producer Steven Soderbergh (“Traffic,” “Erin Brockovich”).

SATURDAY

OUTLANDER 9 p.m., STARZ

Diana Gabaldon’s wildly popular novels finally come to life in this new series from executive producer Ronald D. Moore (of the critically acclaimed “Battlestar Galactica” reboot). This is the first of 16 episodes that tell the tale of headstrong time-traveler Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe).
